If you thought the scenery on offer was breath-taking from the ground, then prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor as it is even more spectacular from the sky. Many of the expedition ships have the capacity for a helicopter to land on them, and so this provides the perfect way to get from the sea to the land in style. Take the opportunity to fly to places that would otherwise be inaccessible and see what secrets you can uncover.
Some of the main destinations in which helicopter flights become useful are in the frozen expanses of the Ross Sea and the Weddell Sea. Although your vessel will be able to cut through the ice in these regions, there is only so far it can go and so the helicopter can open up so much more of this Antarctic wilderness for to enjoy. Also, given the chance, who doesn’t want to experience a ride in a helicopter?
